VOL.XLIX September 2017  #9

Our August meeting included a presentation by Garrett on  “Obsolete Bank Notes”.  Exhibits included souvenirs obtained by Ellison during a vacation trip.  They included a picture of a Gum Ball Machine used to distribute old coins at a gas station.  We discussed our preliminary plans for a Boy Scout Seminar, October 14th.  Discussed changing our Coin Show date to March 25th in light of Madison’s Coin Club picking the same date.
